I have 2 sons, and 3 grandsons so boys are my photo subject most of the time. In some ways I find them easier to photograph than girls, they are not as critical of their photos and more relaxed, but they are also sometimes harder to photograph as they don’t always like to pose and sit still. Some of my favorite photos are from when they are busy just being boys. This is one I captured of my grandson while he was stomping bugs.
Use a fast shutter speed or turn your camera onto action mode to be able to keep up with them, using a fast shutter speed will let in less light so take your photos outside for the best light. Just be ready and keep clicking, they probably won’t freeze till you are ready so this is not the time to be trying to learn new things on your camera.
Don’t be afraid to take photos of your boys being boys, dirt and all
